Utah Educational Quality Indicators. The Seventh in the Report Series.
Nelson, David E.; Ross, John D.
This report, the seventh in a series, summarizes information taken from a variety of ongoing and special studies about education in Utah. The first type of information deals with students' academic achievements and aptitudes. This category includes results from the American College Testing Program, the Scholastic Aptitude Test, the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, the Utah Statewide Educational Assessment Program, the Advanced Placement Program, the National Assessment of Educational Progress Program, and several studies of international education. A second category of information relates to students' attitudes, noncognitive characteristics, and evaluations of their school experiences. Also included are two types of information on educational attainment that are reported in the national context compared with census figures and in connection with course-selection patterns of high school seniors. Utah students are showing improvement in a number of academic areas, and such improvement presumably reflects the impact of the educational reforms implemented to date. Reforms include higher requirements for graduation and college admission. Implications for additional educational reform are discussed. Test results and student information are presented in 37 exhibits. (Contains 26 references.) (SLD)
